Big Brother 21 — The Hard Sell

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 3, 2019

Hi y’all!

Well, it may or may not work but Jessica, Christie, and Tommy are certainly trying their hardest to convince Jackson, Holly, and Nicole that Cliff is the bigger threat. All they really have to do is convince Nicole or Holly to switch their vote and Cliff’s gone. And really, I’m not sure if Cliff realizes that he could go to the jury this week. I wouldn’t say that seems to be cocky but I do think he’s taking it a little bit too much for granted that Jackson isn’t going to change his mind.

When I last checked, Jessica was trying to sell Nicole on voting out Cliff. Jessica’s argument was that, if Nicole’s going to win, she needs to build up a resume and voting to get out Cliff would give her something to tell the jury about when they asked her what big moves she had made. Jessica is also arguing that if Jessica goes, that will increase the chances of Nicole being nominated by the next HoH. (What they don’t know, of course, is that Thursday is going to be a double eviction.) Jessica is basically saying, “As long as you keep me around, there will always be a bigger target in the House than you.” That’s not a bad argument but, at the same time, Cliff and Nicole have been loyal to each other for so long that it’s hard for me to imagine Nicole turning on him. As is usually the case with Nicole, it all probably depends on what the HoH wants to do on Thursday.

Here’s Cliff’s problem. Neither Jackson nor Holly think that they can beat Cliff in a final two situation. At the same time, they also think that Jessica is some sort of mental comp master and they’re afraid that if Jessica wins the next HoH, she’ll target the two of them. Tommy and Christie have been assuring Jackson that Jessica is not that good at competitions and they’ve been using her performance on the wall to make their case.

So, as a Cliff fan, I’m a bit worried this week. It’s not that I think Jackson is going to change his mind as much as I think that Cliff needs to get in there and do some campaigning, just in case. Cliff’s already been voted out once so he should know better than to get relaxed in the house.

Right now, I still think Jessica will be the first to leave on Thursday but a lot can happen in two days.
